Lip Balm

After two dog park visits and a hike in the woods over the weekend, Maya seems to start itching a bit again yesterday. I guess we pushed it a bit too far. For now, it's kind of manageable, so I'm still debating whether to give her Atopica or not. 

I also started to wonder, whether wiping her face after every walk is drying out her skin and makes her more itchy. With that in mind, I started to look for some "edible" body lotion, and the idea of using a lip balm came to mind. I've been eating it everyday myself after all. 

So far I'm very pleased with the result. Every time I see her scratching, I apply a bit on her snout and she'd stop for a few hours. After trying so many things over the months, it's nice to claim that something actually works.

Labeling the lip balm so no humans use it by accident

How spoiled is Maya? I have a good collection of lip balms I don't like sitting there collecting dust, but I gave her my favoriate one.
